Lewis Hamilton world champion


Lewis Hamilton equaled Juan Manuel Fangio's number of title wins as he clinched his fifth championship at the 2018 Mexican Grand Prix on Sunday.

Red Bull's Max Verstappen lead for the majority of the race, putting in a dominant performance to cross the finish line comfortably, ahead of second-placed Sebastian Vettel.

Two races to go

The remaining races in Brazil and Abu Dhabi is dead rubber now but will decide the winner of the Constructors' Championship between Ferrari and Mercedes.

Daniel Ricciardo can't seem to catch a break as he retired during the last few laps of the race with what appeared to be engine problems. It's the latest setback in a line of retirements so far this season, making the Mexican race eight in total.

Fernando Alonso's race also ended prematurely when he retired in the beginning of the race. Carlos Sainz and local hero Sergio Perez also drew DNFs, a disappointment for the latter in front of his home crowd.

Top moments of the race:

1. Hamilton levels with Fangio

Lewis Hamilton might not have finished on the podium but fourth place was enough to win Lewis Hamilton his fifth world championship title, ending a topsy-turvy season with Sebastian Vettel.

Hamilton was having tyre issues throughout the race but held his own and crossed the line some way behind winner Max Verstappen, but he won't mind at all.
